I'm not clinically depressed (a real, actual disease) and I don't hate really anything about my life. But I can't help but wonder if there are simple changes I could make to create more novelty in my life. Changes that could help me live a healthier life, changes that would improve my marriage, my relationship with my siblings, or even just the way I manage our household.
So this weekend I am finishing up The Happiness Project for the 4th time in 3 years, and this time I'm committing to creating my own happiness project. Colten has his own plans for Saturday so I will have most of that day to just ponder, pray, move, and create my own happiness project.
Maybe I could try new recipes, subscribe to a fitness magazine, or FINALLY print off our honeymoon photos. I'm considering finding a weekly dance class to join, learning more about the revolutionary war, creating a dream book, and unsubscribing to all the emails I never read. I have SO much I want to do and am so excited to condense it into my very own Happiness Project so that way it is manageable.
Have you ever done something like this? What habits bring you the most joy? What are some big projects you've tackled lately? What's a big dream you've always wanted to accomplish? I'd love YOUR input so I can put together a happiness project that reflects Brooklyn, but also stretches me to become more than I am. So please, I'm begging you, share your thoughts in the comments below?
